    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Today's paper reported that Denny Hamlin tore his ACL playing basketball but will put off surgery until after the 2010 season. How do you drive a race car with a torn ACL?

    The company doctor said he was fit for duty,it was only a sprain.

    I'd assume put a brace on it?

    It is his left leg (iirc) so shouldn't be that big a deal other than when it comes to like shifting.

    The ACL is torn, not sprained.

    Right after Denny started driving the #11 there was a video on Utube where he thanked all the UPS employees for their support. Boy was he embarassed not knowing who his sponsor was.

    I will be at Daytona in the garage so I'll give a report when I get back!

    Now, THIS is funny.

    David Letterman may not get any flak from NASCAR, but I'll bet he does get some 'flak' from the NAACP, and others such as Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jackson will absolutely go nuts !!!

    David Letterman's Top 10 reasons why there are no black NASCAR drivers:

    # 10 - Have to sit upright while driving.

    # 9 - Pistol won't stay under front seat.

    # 8 - Engine noise drowns out the rap music.

    # 7 - Pit crew can 't work on car while holding up pants at the same time.

    # 6 - They keep trying to carjack Dale Earnhardt Jr.

    # 5 - Police cars on track interfere with race.

    # 4 - No passenger seat for the Ho.

    # 3 - No Cadillacs approved for competition.

    # 2 - When they crash their cars, they bail out & run.


    # 1 - They Can't wear their helmets sideways.
